The Weedon Group, the leading independent manufacturer of corrugated postal packaging, has launched a range of eco-friendly mailing packaging under the brand name, Flexie-mailer. The packaging is so called because its clever design means the same packaging can expand from envelope to pop-up mailer to accommodate items of different sizes, from documents to a host of awkwardly shaped products.
Manufactured from corrugated cardboard from sustainable sources and fully recyclable, Flexie-mailers are intended to replace the use of both one-trip plastic and solid board. With corrugated cushioning, Flexie-mailers offer greater protection than plastic bags and they are approximately 30% lighter than equivalent solid board designs.
Quick and simple to use, Flexie-mailers come with peel & seal tape for secure fastening and an easy-to-open perforated strip. No void fill is required. They can also be printed with the customer’s own graphics in up to three colours, increasing brand exposure throughout the supply chain.
Flexie-mailers are available in 12 stock sizes. The smaller ones will fit through a standard letterbox. Larger ones will accommodate items as large as half a metre square.
Weedon Group Managing Director John Weedon comments:
“While there is growing concern about the use of single-use plastic, corrugated board offers an economical and sustainable alternative. 100% recyclable, strong and flexible, corrugated board makes excellent eco-friendly packaging.
“The design of our Flexie-mailers means one product can have multiple uses, making them an office staple for anyone regularly sending products by courier or through the post.”
